Oo La La... Sweetness!

Oo La La...Sweetness

Hi Ladies!  For those who have gotten snow, do you need something warm to satisfy those cravings?
Slide on down to my place and I will take care of that! No snow you say? Come on over anyway and we will have a wonderful time with our chocolate drinks!
    We finally got snow and I am so happy! It is sooooo beautiful outside, looking at the trees that is just heavy with snow. So I thought a beverage station was in order. It has been set up for a while and just keep switching out cups, plates, etc. We are set up for Valentines. So please, come join me!



 I have plenty of mugs....




 For those cold brisk days,  a cup or two will do....



Some Swiss Mocha and Marshmallows....




 Cinnamon and Amaretto to make an ADULT Mexican Mocho



I used a lotion dispenser for the amaretto



 Or would you prefer tea?




 Don't forget your silver spoon!



Grab a plate.....





Please don't forget your truffles.  Coconut, Pearl Beads or Crystal Sugar..you pick!
(Jacqueline over at Purple Chocolat Home  has a delightful recipe for her snowball cookie pops. It looks fantastic and easy to make. I wish I knew about it before I made these. These truffles had more steps then hers.)









I am sure what ever we drink and eat, we will have a wonderful time getting to know each other!
Thank you for stopping by!


Until the next time,
Muah!    Andrea

Boy. That beverage dispenser is a humdinger! Do tell us a little about it.
The lotion dispenser was a great idea. All looks so yummy. Drinks of the kids and drinks for the Big Kids as well.

Holy Moly! This is gorgeous!!! I love the entire concept!!! I'm a "girlie girl" when it comes to many things, and this buffet table fills the bill! Just so uber-fem! I really like that silver spoon holder, too. Very neat accessory!!! Very pretty silver hot beverage dispenser, too. It has an unusual shape that I really like. They're usually very curvy, but yours is more straight-line. Love it! Have a wonderful week!

Andrea, this is one of the cutest, "sweetest" chocolate posts I've ever seen. I'm on a sugar high just from scrolling down through these beautiful pics. Those mugs are too cute! How clever to have the spoon in the handle. Your entire vignette is full of sweetness. Thanks for sharing! I'm happy to find you! ~ Sarah

Hi Andrea! I would LOVE something warm to drink and I'll take mine with the Amaretto added! We have so much snow that I have stopped thinking of it as pretty and exciting. But your table is very pretty--the ADORABLE mugs, cupcakes, the gorgeous urn and spoon holder, and even the decor on the truffles! Love it all! Linda

Denise had asked about the beverage dispenser. I know nothing about it. I bought it off of ebay (I am a ebayaholic when I am looking for something). The gentleman that I bought it from got it from an auction and it did not have a lid. He sent me a lid that matched it but it does not fit. The lid is round and the dispenser is oval shaped. It was a good bargain and needed one for a catering job. Thank for asking! Thank you all for the sweet comments!

So sorry to be visiting so late. This is absolutely ADORABLE! The cup cake cups are so sweet, the hot dispenser adorable, and the use of the tiered cake stand elevating everything to it's own height makes it all outstanding.

Thank you for bringing your awesome display to Seasonal Sundays. Can't wait to see what you're up to for next week!

Designs By Pinky reminded me that I forgot to let you ladies know where all of my goodies came from. I got the plates, cupcake candles, and mugs at Khol's. I was so excited in sharing a cup of mocha with you that I failed to put in important details...How dare me! Lol

Lana, I will be going to Milan, Venice, Lake Como and the Italian Riviera. When the time gets closer, I jot you a note!
Thanks everyone for the sweet comments!
